Imagine a situation where you want to cut and split something unimportant out of your video, while you have added lots of texts, stickers, sound effects, mosaics and other resources to your video. The step of cutting a simple piece of your video may become a catastrophe since you have to re-adjust the position of all the resource clips. It must be maddening!
If you are faced with this terrible situation, please browse this blog. Filmage Editor will never allow this crashing situation to happen. We provide you the “Add Link” function to help you solve the position problems between every clip.
“Add Link” is a function of grouping or connecting different clips. The principle of this function is basically equivalent to group links. In the Timeline Panel, you can link multiple clips so that you can move or delete them together. In this way you will be able to drag several clips without manually picking up each one of them to a certain section on the timeline. It not only greatly saves your time, but also highly improves your editing efficiency.
